Horrorstör – Grady Hendrix

Klappentext:

Im stilechten Look eines Möbelkatalogs führt Horrorstör in die Untiefen eines ganz besonderen Spukhauses: des Möbelladens ORSK in Cleveland, wo die Angestellten Morgen für Morgen auf zerstörte Ware und Schmierereien an den Wänden treffen. In Ermangelung brauchbaren Materials von den Überwachungskameras werden drei Mitarbeiter dazu verdonnert, eine Nacht im ORSK-Store zu verbringen. Während sie einsam ihre Runden drehen, entwickelt der Laden mehr und mehr ein Eigenleben …

Meine Meinung:

Ob man nun selbst zu den begeisterten IKEA-Kunden gehört oder sich nicht-schwedisch einrichten mag: Jeder wird einmal einen entsprechenden Katalog ins Haus geflattert bekommen haben. Beim flüchtigen Abscannen der Regale im Buchhandel des eigenen Vertrauens mag man sich daher fragen, warum eben jener Katalog dort ausgelegt wurde und wer sich diesen Scherz erlaubt hat. Interessiert oder nicht, einen Blick darauf wird man werfen und dann ziemlich schnell feststellen, dass dieses ORSK-Buch zwar Parallelen zum Möbelriesen aus Skandinavien aufweist und doch einen gravierenden Unterschied mit sich bringt. Denn ORSK hat ein Problem und es wird sich herausstellen, dass dieses Problem nicht mit den gängigen Methoden zum Umgang mit einem Störfaktor aus dem ORSK-Handbuch für Führungskräfte zu bewältigen ist. Des nachts bevölkert eine Kundenklientel die Möbelausstellung, die den Geschäfts- und Firmenrichtlinien nicht die geringste Beachtung schenkt und ihre ganz eigenen Ziele verfolgt. Es ist daher fraglich, ob alle Mitarbeiter der heutigen Nachtschicht das Tageslicht wieder erblicken werden.

Grady Hendrix weiß von diesen Ereignissen zu berichten und wirft einen humorvollen Blick auf die Mitarbeiter einer ganz bestimmten ORSK-Filiale in Cleveland, Ohio und ihre Einstellung zum Arbeitgeber und untereinander. Den nächtlichen Verwüstungen der Möbelausstellung und dem damit verbundenen Profitverlust will man mit einer eigens einbestellten Nachtschicht auf den Grund gehen, zu der auch die Verkäuferin Amy gehört, aus deren Sicht diese Geschehnisse geschildert werden.
Amüsiert man sich zunächst über die Charaktere und deren Taten, so ändert sich dies spätestens, als die Nacht gänzlich hereingebrochen ist und das Grauen Einzug hält.

“Horrorstör” ist eine Spukhausgeschichte der etwas anderen Art. Klassische Elemente dieses Genres wurden hier mit schwarzem Humor und einem deutlichen Augenzwinkern gemischt und in einem wirklich originellen Layout präsentiert, welches alleine schon fast den Kauf dieses Buches rechtfertigt.
Vom Schreibstil her erwartet den geneigten Leser hier nun kein Meisterwerk, dennoch wird die zu erzählende Geschichte flüssig und ohne Stolpersteine geschildert und lässt sich demnach gut und schnell weglesen. Auch erfindet Hendrix dieses Genre nicht neu, er verlegt lediglich den Schauplatz an einen doch ungewöhnlichen Ort und würzt das Ganze gehörig mit einer IKEA-Parodie.

Wer eine gute, solide Haunted-Haus-Geschichte lesen mag, die in einem skurrilen Setting gesetzt ist und anfänglich saukomisch, später jedoch toternst erscheint, der ist mit diesem Buch definitiv gut beraten. Wer zudem noch nach äußerst originellen Buchlayouts sucht, der trifft hier wahrlich ins Schwarze.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I
    could add to my blog that automatically tweet my
    newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for
    quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have
    some experience with something like this. Please let me

    I think everything published was very reasonable. However, consider this, what if you were to write a killer title?
    I am not saying your content isn’t solid., but what if you added something to
    possibly get people’s attention? I mean Horrorstör – Grady Hendrix | chrissieskleinewelt is a little boring.
    You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and see how they write news titles to get viewers to click.
    You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab readers
    excited about everything’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.

    Superb blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..

    Any recommendations? Cheers!

    I’m really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any browser
    compatibility issues? A couple of my blog visitors
    have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
    Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between user
    friendliness and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a very good job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Firefox.
    Outstanding Blog!

    I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made
    good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your
    site? Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way
    of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two
    images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    You actually make it appear so easy together
    with your presentation however I find this topic to be actually something which I feel I might never understand.
    It kind of feels too complicated and very broad for me.
    I’m having a look forward to your next publish, I’ll attempt
    to get the grasp of it!
